Overview

This Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife was hand forged from a Southern Pacific Railroad spike, has notched thumbrest, .164" blade stock and 1.067" blade depth, integral construction. Has some staining and scratches, otherwise good condition. 

"The stamp on the Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife is one that I had developed many years ago and had planned to make some knives here using this "TEXAS COOPER" stamp on, but we never made many, Mr. Cooper did not want to use that stamp. I put the Texas Cooper Logo on a few Spike Knives and put them in storage for many years until recently when i sold the lot to Kenneth Rabedeau. These Southern Pacific Cooper Spike Knife blades were all hand forged here in Texas and have been heat treated. The Souther Pacific Cooper Spike Knives are very rare and only a few other cooper knives had this logo on them. ---Clif Lenderman"

About the Maker

Cooper, John Nelson

John N. Cooper (1906-1987) The Cooper Knife is one of the oldest continually manufactured custom knives known. Beginning in 1924 when John Nelson Cooper, as a hobby, began making knives for the local townspeople of Tremont, Pennsylvania. Since that first knife, the Cooper Knife has evolved into a totally new patented process of manufacturing the sporting blade.The first knives were for the working farmer and housewives but as the popularity of a good serviceable knife grew so did his designs. Soon He was making a complete line of knives for hunters, police, military, fisherman, campers and the all around sportsman. Primarily using conventional methods of attaching the handle, it was noted that the acids and dirt would be built up around the tang and hilt area causing the knife to loosen and literally fall apart. Studying the problem, He developed a totally new method of assembling the knife into a solid, bonded unit. This involved welding, brazing and epoxy that left no joint open or that could be opened, in a lifetime or more of use. The process was so unique that it was granted two United States patents #3,481,038 and #3,595,104.
